Welcome, friends! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…!
Today I’m participating in a Christmas home tour hop – and YOU have the chance to win $300 PayPal cash for your Christmas shopping! Don’t forget to read to the end to get your entry in!
Meanwhile, come on in to my place and I’ll show you around.
This year I chose to decorate in a theme of indigo and gold. For those new around here, I live in Australia, which means we celebrate a summer Christmas! We also live at the beach, so my Christmas decorating often has a coastal flavour.
This gorgeous watercolour wrapping paper was the jumping-off point for my ideas.
I used this beautiful paper to fill some frames over my buffet, and added some simple white wreaths. It was a cheap way to get some new temporary artwork. 😉
I also selected a gorgeous deep indigo wrapping paper to complement the watercolour tones.
I’ve always loved the reflections of fairy lights on glass…
I laid the table with a simple linen cloth and used the giftwrap to create an instant table runner.
Gold chargers and cutlery bring a bit of Christmas luxe…
I sprayed Christmas snow on some real greenery and massed it along the runner for a simple centrepiece.
The taper candles add some understated elegance. (The geometric holders were $2 each from Kmart – win!)
Each place setting has a little present wrapped in indigo paper and tied with a gold crushed ribbon, with a sprig of greenery.
These beautiful papers really are the star of the show – the gifts are such a key part of the decor! After all, it wouldn’t be Christmas without presents!
I hope you’ve enjoyed having a little look around our indigo and gold Christmas decor.
